COFFEE ENEMA DIRECTIONS AND WHY I LOVE THEM!
I have to start off saying you may be thinking like I was in the beginning.
A coffee enema, what? Oh, my this is nuts.
I read a lot about them years ago after I received a medication error from a medical facility.
Where did coffee enemas originate
The coffee enemas have been used since the 1930’s with Max Gerson and Alternative Cancer treatment. Gerson had a very interesting approach to alternative cancer treatment.
Gerson found that many patients succumbed to liver failure. Gerson started to introduce the coffee enemas to cleanse the liver.
As with any healing process or where the body is overburdened with toxins the liver is unable to flush the toxins.
Once Gerson started the coffee enemas on his patients he started to see a higher success rate. If you are interested in learning more about Gerson you can read a book on the protocol here.
I just wanted to give you a brief history of the coffee enema.
Why do I love them?
Well, I have to say I didn’t love them in the beginning and I didn’t want to do them.
They were a part of a 28 day Alternative/Integrative Cancer Treatment I had at CMN Hospital for Breast Cancer.
I was not looking forward to this part of the treatment. But, after a few days and getting used to the process it was a very cleansing feeling.
It’s hard to explain but when I am detoxing or overloaded with toxins I feel like a ran a marathon and I have a lot of trouble concentrating or focusing. After my second or third coffee enema in Mexico I started to feel more clear headed.
Since returning home from Mexico I am still doing daily coffee enemas. When I am unable to do the coffee enema I get very sluggish and that feeling of toxicity returns.
Other symptoms of a sluggish/congested liver
Not, all of us have the same symptoms when our livers our sluggish.
Here are some other symptoms:
- bad breath
- swollen ankles
Now, these are just a few other symptoms.
So now lets get to the fun part how do you do a coffee enema.
Things you will need.
- Coffee– You want a clean organic coffee (no mold, mycotoxins) This is the one I used at CMN Hospital.
- Enema bucket– I like the stainless one it is easy to keep clean, and you can throw it in the dishwasher to keep it clean. This one is nice it comes in a bag to store it in and includes the supplies you need. You will need additional tubing because you want to be sanitary. You can change tubing weekly.
- Distilled Water- 32 oz. You can get this in any grocery store. If you don’t have any distilled water you can boil tap water for 10-15 minutes and it will remove minerals etc and you can use that for your enema.
- Something to hang your enema bucket from– Most people lay on bathroom floor and hang from door knob. We don’t have a door knob on a pocket door in bathroom so I bought this. It is so cool and it’s decorative. All I do with this is slide the cloth hanger the slide on the frame it works great.
- Protective Enema Sheet– This thing is the bomb. You put it under you and sometimes you will have a little coffee come out when you remove tube so this makes things so clean and you just wash it in your washer. Less waste. I was using bed wee wee pad protectors but they are like 15.00 for 10.
- Coconut oil, Avocado oil- You will use this for lubrication on the tip to insert for your enema.
Take 2 Tbsp of the Coffee and add to 32 oz of Distilled water. You will boil the coffee in saucepan for 5 minutes with the coffee floating in it. After it has boiled for 5 minutes turn off burner and cover and let the coffee sit. After about 10-15 minutes I crack the lid and move the coffee from the hot burner to let the coffee cool. I cool it to room temperature.
I test the coffee temperature on my wrist just like you do with a bottle of milk for a baby.
Then once cooled you will add the coffee to your enema bucket. (Make sure you have the tubing closed or it will pour out onto the floor, lol speaking from experience)
Hang your enema bucket from your door knob or cool picture hanger.
Pull your knees up into fetal position while laying on your right side
I loved this photo I had to use this… 🙂
While laying in fetal position you will place the tube tip. In the kit I have listed above it comes with a tip that has a handle at the top. You will only insert to that little ridge on the tip. It’s only about 3 inches.
You only insert to that blue tip that you can see in this picture. The other end of tubing gets attached to the stainless steel bucket. Again, these you want to change once a week.
When inserting there should be no discomfort at all. You may need to adjust until it slides in.
Once you have inserted you will unclamp the clasp attached to the tubing. The clamp keeps coffee from flowing out before you are ready. So unclasp and slowly let the coffee flow. (tip: don’t hang the enema bucket higher than 24 inches, mine hangs about 22inches. You don’t want it flowing too fast.
I split the 32 oz in two separate enemas I just stop the enema flow once I am feeling a bit full. Then I have Alexa set my 20 minute timer and hold the enema. If you have a real urge to go please go evacuate. You may need to work up to the 20 minute range.
I like to split them up because I found trying to hold the entire 32 oz I couldn’t hold as long.
They are awesome and I look forward to your feedback.
What interested you about the coffee enemas?
Other ways I support my liver and detoxing
A detox is so important for the health of the body. I first read about coffee enemas years ago in one of my health books. At first I thought this was something I would try. However, not doing an enema before, I could not get myself to do it. I was not sure of the safety. Now that I have read more in detail here, I think it’s something for me to try. How often should you detox with it?
Carol, I totally understand. I was in same place. It depends on what you are detoxing from. I split a 32 oz into two enemas and do daily. Gerson they do 4-5 a day but they balance it with juicing for the electrolyte balance. I would say once daily to clear the liver if it were me.
Wow, I had no idea. I know someone who has been drinking beer every day for the last 3 years that I know of and they are always complaining about these really bad headaches out of nowhere. I am going to send the link to this post. Great information.
I hope this helps them regenerate their liver. They should definitely look into the Castor oil packs, too.
Kudos to you for this post. This is actually something that I haven’t heard of before and you really went into detail to explain the process and why it is important. I personally think we need more natural remedies in this world and I like that you are focusing on that. You have a great story
Wow Francine very educative post! I had no idea about this. Detoxing your body is so important to leave an healthy life. Thanks for sharing!
Well, I must say, I learned a lot from your page. Glad I came across your site. I do have a friend that is looking into doing some all natural items and methods for detoxifying. I will send your site to her. Should this be done on a regular basis for everyone? Are there any benefits for all of us to try this enema?
My wife and I like buying all the natural foods but have never tried such a thing as this. I am stuck on the idea that this has to be nasty and really would not want this done. I am open to trying new things and will check back at your site for more information. Thanks for the information.
Yes, it is great! It is beneficial for anyone wanting to detox. Trust me I get your hesitation. Do it now before things arise. You wil be surprised how great they make you feel. The first few times are a little weird but you will get used to it.
Thanks for breaking this down step by step. Of course, I’d also heard about coffee enemas, and I think how Janet Jackson swore by them or something when she lost all that weight…but I’ve never tried it. Seems more doable now, and I’ll have to be brave and give it a shot. I love coffee, and this is just a new way to love it! 🙂
lol, I don’t even like coffee. I am actually allergic to it. But, I do so well with the coffee enemas. It is weird at first but once you get the insertion down you are golden. 🙂
Hi Francine and thank you for such an informative article/post. I was not familiar with coffee enemas, but, after reading your post I will consider them for the health benefits they afford. My baby sister who is 48 yrs old has autoimmune liver disease and lupus, do you think the coffee enema might be good for her? She is on the waiting list for a liver transplant in Houston TX. I look forward to your answer or you can PM me. Thanks so much for sharing this information.
I would research more as I am not aware of issues with those waiting for liver transplant. Also look at castor oil packs. I’m sorry she is going through all of this. Have her do some research on liver regeneration, etc.
This is new information for me. I never knew about Coffee Enemas and now I do, thanks to your detailed explanation.
It’s good to know that you are taking care of yourself in whatever way you can. I hope you keep it up.
Detoxing is important so you can function more efficiently and gain resilience. It’s good to have reminders like this of the importance of taking care of ones self.
Gluck in your journey.
The mere thought of taking an enema is a bit of a culture shock for me as I’m sure it will be for most guys.
But I think as men we really need to put aside our egos and do what is good for our health.
But in all honesty, this is the first time I’m hearing about this coffee enema. Is it healthy to do this everyday over a period of time? I’m under the impression that too many enemas isn’t good for your gut.
Even for women, lol. Yes, they are safe and they are not like going and having a colon cleanse professionally. This only goes about 2-3 inches in and does not mess with gut flora, at all.
I tried this last night and I feel SO much better!! It was so much easier than I anticipated. And not as “violent” as I was expecting. I think I was expecting a reaction like I’d get from a laxative and it was so much better than that. Very natural and easy. Thanks for the directions and for making me go get a pan and get the water boiling. 😉
You are so welcome and I am so happy that you are feeling better. I know that was one reason why I was hesitant on going to CMN the coffee enemas lol.. I didn’t want anything up my bootay lol
